FTB director of e-filing bureau appointed to IRS committee

Chris Beach, Director of the Filing Methods and Budget Bureau, has been appointed to the Internal Revenue Service Electronic Tax Administration Advisory Committee (ETAAC) as a state revenue agency representative. He will serve in this role for three years.

This committee is composed of members primarily from the private sector who have key roles in the expansion of IRS e-government programs. Members provide input to the IRS from the perspective of tax professionals, online commercial tax preparation companies, electronic banking companies, and state revenue agencies.

The committee is an organized public forum for discussion of electronic tax administration issues. It supports the goal that paperless filing should be the preferred, and most convenient method of filing tax and information returns.

Convened at the request of Congress, ETAAC submits an annual report directly to Congress. The report offers:

  • Public and industry perceptions of IRS electronic tax administration activities.
  • Constructive observations about current or proposed policies, programs and procedures.
  • Suggested improvements.

We are proud that Mr. Beach has been honored by his selection to the Electronic Tax Administration Advisory Committee. He brings a wealth of electronic tax administration experience to the committee.
